From the article: Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) places the blame on these European companies for the alligator clips being applied to dissidents, which is a bad thing. But if, instead of dissidents, the alligator clips were being applied to terrorists in, say, Iraq or Afghanistan, well then that would be a good thing I guess, and Sen. Kirk would be giving the credit instead of placing the blame.

Hey, we're not in business to preserve human rights. In fact, we would be legally liable for failing our fiduciary duty to our shareholders if we failed to pursue the lucrative oppression-assistance market. We were incorporated to pursue profit and, by golly, that's what we're doing!

No, they aren't. In fact, the final hardware for the 4S was the first engineering prototype, and the iOS5 golden master was the first version that even compiled.
Apple can get away with this because they know that they'll sell as many iPhones as they can make, no matter how crappy they are.
